Hi, I have 5 chicks that are 9 weeks old. They have been out in the yard for a few weeks now. We hatched them in the incubator and our dog slept in the same room with them, mostly protecting them the whole time. We were very careful when we introduced her to the chicks in the out of doors, and she quickly became their watch dog, often herding them around and barking at possible predators like the hawk who tried to grab one. Recently, in the last week, she has decided that they are fun to chase. She hasn't hurt them (yet), she has cornered one and then just sniffs it and licks it a lot. The chicks didn't used to be scared of her but now they are terrified. They have a tractor in the yard but during the day we let them free range about the yard. I'm wondering if anyone has training tips on how to train dogs to get used to chickens and how to get them to not chase them. Like I said she did really well for the first 8 weeks, this is a strange change in behavior. Thanks!
